Capt Goldfish

Registeel is back! Is this exciting? Yes it is, at least for you PvP people out there. PvE people not so much, for you it’s just shiny fun, but for you GBL players, it’s the return of the king, that is no longer king, but still kind of king?

Now it has a great coverage move, Zap Cannon! You can only get it from these raids, or use an elite charge TM on a Registeel you already have. Zap Cannon lowers your opponents attack, and lightning is a pretty useful coverage in the meta overall. Along with Focus Blast, you might see them popping up more, you won’t want to miss it! Even if you don’t PvP, you might want to have some trade power in the future.

Now, what to use? Steel resists so much, but it’s weak to fire and fighting, two very offensive types. Ground is in there too, but really, everyone should have a fighting squad to lean on for raids.
